Victory Dance!

I managed to sneak into the class I needed for the fall semester. Now the financial aide department will stop sending me threatening letters. And I won't be stuck taking the history of opera, again! I like opera, but there's only so much an instrumental musician can get out of repeat trips through a class. There's the French. They like dancing in opera. There's the Germans: they really like emotions. Oh, and chords. Then there's the Italians. Every word ends in a vowel, so they're good at vocal lines. And rhyming. And that's it. Until the Americans come along: they like operas that are either hummable and questionably-operatic (see "Candide") or involve famous Americans and lots of repeated words for easy clairty (see "Nixon in China").

Come to think of it, maybe I could use another pass through....
